As far as ride quality I love it, I just didnt like the rear shocks almost have give and feel real stiff. I put the stock ones back on for now.
I will be going with front belltech with stock srings and adding shackles to the rear to get another 1in drop.
@Spadey I am having the same problem you had in the back with my ground force 9861 kit. The ride is very shitty in the back, I think it may be the ground force rear shocks. Did your ride improve in the back when you put the oem shock absorbers back on?

Update: I got the ground force rear shocks replaced with oem shocks, ride is very smooth now feels like factory. The ground force rear shocks were just too stiff.

Oem on top, ground force on bottom
